Chairman Rlgg of the speakers' bureau of
the republican state committee has an
nounced that Senator Fairbanks and Secre
tary of War Root are among . the well
known public men scheduled to address Ne
braska voters this fall. - The dates for their
appearances In . the state have not been
set, but their presence is assured. As at
present contemplated, there will be two
campaign trains, one having Senator Fair
banks as tha leading feature and the ether
with Speaker Cannon on board. Tha itin
eraries have not been completed, but they
will include Nebraska. .
T. H. Doran of Burwell, who Is tha re
publican! candidate' for representative in
the Forty-ninth, district, was among the
callers at state headquarters...
"For sixteen years wa have had a popu
list representative in the state legislature,"
said Mr. Doran, "but we hops to Changs
this in November. The last time the suc
cessful man had' a majority of only stxty
elght, and this year we think we can win
out. ' 'The fact that 'the democrats and
populists have dectded to concentrate every
bit of strength on the legislative tickets
and ease off on the state ticket will make
It hard, however. W. J. Bryan Is at tha
helm In this move, but It la doubtful
whether he can command anything like his
old following."

tion af John H. Bnldwla'a
Man Gerley.
Joseph W. Folk, the boodler prosecutor
and democ ratio nominee for governor of
Missouri, will speak In Nebraska three
times during October, and, contrary to pre
vious announcement made by certain Lin
coln functionaries, one of his speeches will
be made In Omaha. This advice comes
from one ef the democratic leaders who Is
Instrumental In getting Mr. Folk to this
"Mr. Bryan Is making a number sf
speeches for Mr. Folk Jn Missouri." . said
this man, "and Mr. Folk will return the
favor with three speeches In Nebraska in
behalf of the democraUo ticket here, and
the agreement Is that one of these speeches
shall be made In Omaha. "
It Is planned to secure the Auditorium
for the Folk meeting here, which is to be
the biggest meeting ef the democraflo
campaign In Jfcraska. At least, that Is
what the democrats who are getting up tha
affair give out. .
"Mr. Folk wiU do all In his power for
Berge and ths entire ticket," said this
leader, who is responsible for this an
nouncement, "but he will, In accordance
with the plans for this big Omaha rally,
devote special efforts to the congressional
race' In the Second district. Tou see, we
are counting on 'the nomination of-Ourley
by the republicans; that nomination will
be made by the time this meeting Is held
and we propose to make that rally a grand
congressional demonstration. It will take
In democrats from every county In the
Second district and the combined effort
will be centered on Mr. Hitchcock's Inter
ests as opposed to those of Gurley. , Of
course, the meeting will be held just the
same, whether Gurley Is the republloan
nominee or not, but we are counting on
nothing else than Gurley's nomination.
"This meeting will be opened by speeches
from Congressman Hitchcock and Mr.
Berge, nominee for governor. We have not
concluded arrangementa for the Auditorium,
but negotiations are under way and there
Is little If any doubt of the big rally being
held there." '
Mr. Folk, being the champion prosecutor
of professional corporation boodlers and
Mr. Gurley being the candidate of the allied
corporations, and having been one of the
most prominent professional railroad lobby
ists In the state legislature, will. It is con
templated, enable the promoters of this
meeting easily to realise the fruition of
their purpose and give all the weight and
point to the presence and address of Folk
If Gurley Is the nominee of his party. .Mr.
Folk has been advised of the situation and
will be further advised on his arrival, so
that" republicans who are supporting Gurley
will find quite as much of Interest In this
meeting as the democrats if ' Gurley is
nominated. ...
The ' Blackburn-Gnrfey literary machine
has been grinding and sending out large
lots of mall during the last few days. The
feature of this mall Is one card on which
the Baldwin candidate .makes a really pa
thetic appeal for support In the primaries.
"I need your vote," is the' burden of the
plaint, and in this Mr. Gurley Is given full
credit for uttering the truth. But the mis
chief has been played with these' cards.
It had been agreed between Byron G. Bur
bank, who- was 'the- candldaW front- the
Sixth ward, and Gurley, that Gurley should
moke' no effort to capture the Sixth, that
It should be conceded and left to Burba nk,
In compensation of which these two men
were to put In joint delegations in the
Fifth and Eighth wards. But now comes
Gurley with his Blackburn postal cards In
the Sixth ward, appealing for the votes of
the republicans In that bailiwick and try
ing to take them away from Burbank, con
trary to the agreement. No little friction
has been aroused by this Blackburn-Qurley
As a parting service In his capacity as a
resident of the Seventh ward, A. H. Burnett
has assumed the obligation of delivering
that ward to Gurley In the primaries and
convention. Both he and his law partner,
H. C. Brome, are moving Into the Ninth
ward and Burnett has. Just for old time's
sake, kindly agreed to box up the whole
Seventh ward and hand it over to the
railroad candidate, ready for use.

Will Peak Independent Telephone
If Old Rates Are
Hot Cut.
A. B. Hunt, one of the projectors of an
Independent, telephone company made up
largely of local men, says an attempt will
be made to get a franchise If the Zlmmaa
ordinance to out the rates of the N
breaks Telephone company falls In the
"The telephone people think they hare
control of a majority of the council to
do exactly as they p'.ease," said Mr. Hunt.
"Now that a majority has gone on record
against a second company in Omaha, they
think they can defeat the ordinance en
forcing a reduction In rates. If this Is
done we shall apply for a franchise and
made a mighty warm fight to get It."
Several councilman who have been asked
bow they will vote on the Zlmman ordi
nance refuse to commit themselves. They
give as sn excuse that the problem Is a
deep ons snd they do not care to say any
thing until they have Investigated It fully.
Some say they think the proposed reduc
tions are too heavy while others are pro
fessing a fear that If rates are knocked
down the wages of the telephone girls
and other employes will be v reduced and
poor service follow. The ordinance Is ex
pected to come up for discussion next
Tuesday morning, provided Chairman
Evans of the committee that has It so
"The Impression that the telephone com
pany is willing to accede to a reduction In
rates in order to bar competition is not
correct in my opinion," sad Acting Mayor
Zlmman. "The cut means a loss to the
company of about $120,000 a year and no
corporation will stand for .that without
making a fight. The ordinance seems to
have some chance of success, but this
cannot be said for a certainty until the
voes are cast and counted.
Cause Suit Between Former' Partners
for Equitable Distribution of
r the Property.
William C. McNamara of Sioux Cltv has
brought suit in the United States circuit
court against his former partner1, Nels An
derson, and his sort, Harry Anderson of
Cedar county. Nebraska, for the eaultahla
settlement of their partnership affairs
growing out of their Joint purchase of two
ranches, one of 1,135 acres In Loud
county and another of 2.000 ' acres in
Rock and Brown couuntles, Nebraska, with
several hundred head of .stock on the re
spective ranches. The amount of tnnnnv
Involved approximates $35,000. The ranches
were bought in January last, the first
named of the A. D. Cattle company, and
the other of 2,000 acres of Christie Bros.
McNamara claims to have put ud most
of the cash for the purchase of tha ranches
and that the "defendants have as yet paid
In little or nothing, but still claim their
part of the profits accruing from the busi
ness. August 2 the partnership between the car-
ties was dissolved and It appears the de
fendants have applied for a receiver for
the ranches. McNamara protests against
this-proceeding. In his petition he claims
the Andersons have failed to carry out any
part of the original partnership agreement
and that they have no' reason to ask for
the appointment of a receiver. Therefore
McNamara asks that the application for a
receiver be denied until Jhls court shall
have heard all the evidence on both sides
